Nice photos, Steve. Thanks for sharing. Looks pretty cool with a lot packed into that small caravan.

Sorry for the late reply, but this looks awesome! The key ingredient for me is this little guy here:


A clear conscience is a great pillow.

Looks like you have your writing supplies covered, but, where do you store the catalogs (for reading and other purposes)?! And how do you charge your iDevices while surfing the interweb?!

Dear DFW, X-Air, and WeatherCat road-trip wannabees,

Sorry for the late reply, but this looks awesome! The key ingredient for me is this little guy here:

Never quibble about a functional solution, but my heart still yearns for something a tad more romantic like say this sort of a rig:

The number of choices if you want something nostalgic but still modern is definitely growing.  I recently discovered Casita Travel Trailers:

https://casitatraveltrailers.com/



They are a bit on the small size, but they are really cute and functional.  It doesn't scratch the vintage trailer itch.  On the other hand, it sure is a lot more appealing than many of the boxy RVs that are out there, and it doesn't require a huge SUV or pickup to tow it.

Having more choices doesn't solve the problem of how to pay for one, but as always, window shopping is always free!  :)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

The Casita factory is near me in DFW.

I have driven past that Casita plant several times.
